Leadership can be a scary part of the entrepreneurial journey when making the transition from employee to CEO.
Being in charge and hiring a team is only a small fraction of what defines great leadership.
Certified leadership coach and expert John Thalheimer is sharing how we can take the first steps in becoming a more effective leader. He reminds us that leadership is not a place or destination, but a practice. It is something we have to continue to work on and make time to really master it.
(1:55) “…how important that executive presence is. The ability to go out and talk, and get your message across to other people. I think as entrepreneurs we always want to do that. How we want to do that and what’s the right way. I think that part is really important to understand.”
(5:00) “The entrepreneur has a hard time of letting go and delegating. What happens is we are entrepreneurs right? We brought this great idea and we want to make it happen. We are so focused on the execution that we forget to step into that leadership role and go ‘wait I need to be a leader. I need to delegate out responsibilities’”.
(9:45) “When I’m working with managers and clients, I’m always telling them to spend as much time as necessary to hire the right person. A lot of the times we get into this situation as a manager or as a leader, we’ll just say we need someone in here. I just need someone to do that. So we hire somebody and then in the long term we spend a lot of time with their performance.”
